 [KG1]Per s.8.1(2) of the Regulation, the Minister designates if items are subject to indexing through this MO.  This does not mean that indexing is required but confirms if indexing is reinstated, the item will be indexed.  Retaining this column is consistent with the approach to “pause” indexing in the legislation.

 [KG2]Minor change for clarification

 [KG3]This is one of three items that would be indexed in July instead of January.  As indexing is paused, it is not necessary to remove this statement (i.e.; if there is no indexing in January, no July adjustment to this maximum would be required) and leaving the statement mainly intact is consistent with the approach to “pause” indexing in the legislation.

 [KG4]This is one of three items that would be indexed in July instead of January.  As indexing is paused, it is not necessary to remove this statement (i.e.; if there is no indexing in January, no July adjustment to this maximum would be required) and leaving the statement mainly intact is consistent with the approach to “pause” indexing in the legislation.

 [KG5]Small clarification to be specific that only one PRS is funded per household (i.e. not one for each member of a senior couple).

 [KG6]Small clarification to confirm the senior must also reside at the address at which the utility is being disconnected.

 [KG7]This is one of three items that would be indexed in July instead of January.  As indexing is paused, it is not necessary to remove this statement (i.e.; if there is no indexing in January, no July adjustment to this maximum would be required) and leaving the statement mainly intact is consistent with the approach to “pause” indexing in the legislation.
